BRADENTON (FOX 13) -

A dispute at a troubled Bradenton nightclub turned violent early Saturday morning and ended with one man in jail and another in the hospital.

Sinuhe Campos, 32, is facing one count of assault with a deadly weapon. He was booked into the Manatee County Jail where he is being held without bond pending his first appearance before a judge.

According to a Manatee County Sheriff's Office report the incident occurred just after 2 a.m. at the El Paisano bar located at 5803 15th St. East.

Investigators say Eddie Lopez confronted the suspect after he allegedly spilled a beer on his girlfriend. Campos, who was there with his wife, got into an argument with Lopez when he pulled out a razor blade knife and started slashing the victim.

A MCSO deputy working security at the club was alerted and Campos was detained for questioning. Lopez was transported to Blake Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

He was treated and released.

Over the past several years the El Paisano has been the site of several violent incidents. In 2006 local law enforcement teamed with federal agents and raided the nightclub in an effort to curb the violence.

If you have any information about this latest incident please contact the Manatee County Sheriff's Office at 941-747-3011.
